    Try for the nose first, eyes next, then save the rest for when it is close and then give it the rest of the magazine as fast as I can.

    Im unloading on the bears dome! And hope that if it doesnt kill it it wounds the bear enough to stop charging at me.

    Bullet in the face. Or shoot for the teeth and maybe you will just get gummed to death.

    don't bother shooting and reach for the pepper spray...

    Really, I'd aim for the brain, fire, and run like HELL!
    Or clay's idea was good, shoot you're buddy's ankle and run...

    Elkslayer, so true, you don't have to outrun the bear, you just have to outrun your buddy.

    Option #1 shot and then grab the gun by the barrel and use it as a club. Option #2 take out your pocket knife and hamstring your hunting buddy, then run.

    There is no good answer here. We butcher each fall and shoot the hogs between the eyes at point blank range with a single shot .22 LR and the slug never penetrates the skull, it's always laying under the skin, slightly imbedded in the bone. I have also seen similiar instances with black bear skulls. I saw one shot at point blank range with a .44 mag at a slightly glancing angle. The bullet entered in the face, skipped along the skull under the hide, and exited around the ear, leaving only a red streak on the skull and no breakage. It took several more shots to put the bear down for keeps. I took one with a .300 Win. Mag a few years back that did the same basic thing. The bear was treed at a distance of about 30 yards, facing me. I held for the nose and squeezed off. Apparently it turned it's head at the shot, as my 180 gr. Hornady interlock did the same basic thing, coming out around the ear, with no real damage. A second shot sealed the deal. Point being, I guess the .22 is better than a pine knot, but not by much, nor is trying to outrun it. That's why the Super Blackhawk goes along bowhunting.
